Please join us at FM for their yummy brunch and fantastic sound stage! This Month I've got tips fresh from June's NYC SyncSummit's Panel VPs for Viacom, MTV & BET. 

Our Feature Performers are
Rob Christiansen, Val Kilzner & Carol Lester

VAL KINZLER is a fantastic singer, writer, and multi instrumentalist with top 10 on the ReverbNation Alternative charts for New York, NY! Val's Music Cool World “Silence The Violence” concert was recorded live and featured alongside “Sesame Street” and “Songs of Love” on WFUV’s City Scape Program. Val’s pop ballad “Love Won’t Break” placed in the 1998 John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

ROB CHRISTIANSEN is songwriter, film composer, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as a performer and writer in the rock bands, Grenadine, East Ghost West Ghost, and Eggs, but he has composed music cues for independent film, advertising, video games, and theater. He is a recording engineer and producer, and is a current member (synthesist) of pop band Bel Aviv, guitarist in Afro-jazz inspired Despite Straight Lines, and drummer in the Maracatu New York Brazilian drum ensemble. He is the founder of songwriting marathon event, 29 Hour Music People, and occasionally leads the Brian Eno tribute band known as Here Come The Warm Jets Live. Look for the album, Less Lonely under the name "Christiansen, Rob" in 2018.

CAROL LESTER has had songs placed in TV & Film. She's an Ascaplus & Unisong Award Winning Songwriter who hosts this 2nd Sunday Songwriter Series. While VP at MaMaPaLooZa Records, Carol served as a five year Industry Judge for the IMA's International Music Awards. Carol's been meeting with NYC, LA & Nashville Music Supervisors and Sync Agents to network back into Song Placement. She's got fresh industry tips to share from June's Intn'l SyncSummit
